Fans of Michael Schumacher have reacted emotionally to footage of his son Mick driving the classic Jordan 191 vehicle. Sky Sports broadcast footage of Mick driving his father’s maiden Formula One car. Schumacher’s career began with the green Jordan 191, which was an emotional event for his son Mick.
During a stoppage in the Belgian Grand Prix, which was red-flagged due to inclement conditions on the circuit, the video aired.
Much of the racing weekend at Spa-Francorchamps has been hampered by rain.
Mick, who is an F1 driver in his own right, drove the vehicle that his father, Michael, initially raced in F1 during a Sky Sports F1-organized special test at Silverstone in July.
It’s also the 30th anniversary of Michael’s legendary first Formula One test.
“Watching the docu on Michael Schumacher’s debut in the #BelgianGP, and the Jordan 191 reminds me of just how gorgeous F1 cars once were,” said one emotional fan on social media.
“That piece on Michael Schumacher’s ’91 vehicle with Mick Schumacher driving was really lovely,” another admirer tweeted. It may have made my eyes as wet as Eau Rouge.”
“The SkySportsF1 feature with Mick Schumacher driving the Jordan is quite good,” others wrote. A little emotional! #KeepFightingMichael.”
“It’s incredibly great to witness Michael Schumacher’s son racing in Formula 1,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“It’s such a joy to see Mick Schumacher drive his father Michael Schumacher’s 191 Jordan,” said another. Michael began his Formula One career 30 years ago in this car in Spa.”
Mercedes tweeted ahead of today’s race, “30 years ago, Michael Schumacher made his F1 start here in Spa.”
“Thank you for becoming a part of our history for the rest of your life, Michael.”
“#OnThisDay 17 years ago…,” F1 said. Michael Schumacher won his eighth world championship at the Belgian Grand Prix, which was fitting.
“And now, his kid is preparing for the race in 2021.”
The trailer arrives ahead of the September 15 premiere of a new Netflix documentary.
The streaming giant said in June that a documentary about Schumacher’s life was in the works, with Schumacher’s family’s OK.
Mick appears in the film, along with other members of his family, in “Brinkwire Summary News.”
